It should be obvious to anyone with half a brain that it isn’t Crewe; there aren’t any overhead wires for a start. And it’s not Exeter either; it’s Ipswich.

Sadly the Ipswich shot is the only one of the batch showing the milk tanks in active service on the short-lived Chard - Stowmarket service. After this service stopped, the MMB kept them stationed at various creameries in case of emergency for some years until they were scrapped. There is an interesting page on the subject here.
